    These days, it is your best bet to get a DVD-Burner. This will read and write DVDs and CDs. I prefer Plextor brand myself, I currently use a PX-716A. Do some research and get other opinions. I know LG and Benq make some good drives too.

    Also when you look at the combos it will tell you what the required system specs are. If your system is fairly new you shouldn't have a problem.

    Get one with a dvd writer not just to read dvd's. Shop around & you should get a good price.
